Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah has said that the party will decide on the chief ministerial candidate after BJP-led NDA wins the Bihar Assembly election with two-thirds majority. He said the people do not want jungle raj-2 and the coalition will come to power in the state. BJP-led NDA government is must for development of Bihar, he added.
Speaking to media persons, Shah said, “The party and the parliamentary board will decide the name of the chief minister candidate soon after we win two-thirds majority in polls.”
He also said that BJP was “committed” to the existing quota for the OBCs and SC/STs. “BJP does not favour any change in the reservation policy, rather it supports the existing quota policy. We are committed to keeping inviolable these constitutional rights given to the dalit, tribals, backwards and others,” he told reporters
“Only (we) can develop Bihar because Rashritya Janata Dal or RJD chief Lalu Prasad, his wife Rabri Devi and Nitish Kumar-led government ruled the state for 25 years but it remained backward,” Shah said.
“We are seeking votes for the BJP-led coalition in the state so that the the next state government should function in tandem with the Centre and take forward development works to the logical end,” he appealed.
He said NDA is set to win 32-34 of the 49 assembly constituencies where polls were held in the first phase on October 12 and 22-24 of the 32 constituencies which went to the polls in the second phase on October 16.
